To reason with thee, O mind
Logic, nor reason thou hast thy own,
No use O mind with thee to reason.
Silent, when I seek an opinion,
Or lion-like roar for no reason.
One moment whilst ye hit a bull’s eye,
Very next, thy reason is...Read More
O Statue on pedestal
Pray Bapu1, we’re in plastic age,
Stay happy installed, tall on stage.
Too bad, your birthday prayer meets,
Rows of stark chairs staring in rage,
If your spinning wheels still rotate,
They just spin for a page-three page.

Ode to Life
And the soft song plays in the ears of all, that the phantom sound is clear. Like the golden-crowned
sparrow in the depth of fall, the melody rings in heavenly halls, the song:...Read More
appreciation, birthday, thanks,
Born on this ample autumn feast held yearly on the earth’s bed
Of sweet, mellow tinges of chrome hued to motley tints of red,
You should sure grow as affluent, bounteous, and merciful
From the abundance of your...Read More
I wish to thank
To my sorrows I wish to thank,
The grief that galled me, wish to thank—
Adversities that chased all life,
To my sad state I wish to thank.
Troubles, stumbles, pains, tears, sadness—
Those that caused them, I wish to...Read More
a simple refrain
appreciation, childhood, fun, rain,
a sweet refrain walking in the rain
a child’s game walking in the rain
winds rustle leaves, nature’s song
a sweet refrain walking in the rain
cool relief from a sultry day
I step outside walking in the rain
light diffused...Read More
absence, dance, feelings,
Kushi key jaam
Har mukam par mainey tera intazar kiya
Har ibaadat par kuda bhi bebas hua
Hussan ko jo tarasha ousney aaj dekh ouski beyrukhi

Gone! Grief ends with an acceptance sigh
Glum death, another feigned forbearance sigh…
Reining-in fervent sobs in public ceremony
Rites by rote dull the innate in a perseverance sigh…
As songs drown the cries of agony’s fervor
Alive words ease...Read More
Where would Footprints go
poetry, sea, words,
From cuckoo’s calls where’d her echo?
Far from its coast where’d the sea go?
Space-bestirred, time’s sucked by black hole.
Where would the vicissitudes go?
If breath ceases, word’s once spoken,
How far the vibrations would go?
Failing to fetch...Read More
inspirational, morning, nature,
Morning soothes my heart and delights my thoughts
Whispers of a misty moment rights my thoughts
Buttery sunshine bestows joy through my life
As hues of lavender laughter highlights my thoughts
Gentle birds emerge and silence the milky clouds

After the Last Song
friendship, good night, goodbye,
I look to the sky
a dark friendly sky
music stilled spotlights fade
I look for stars in the sky
friends offer last hugs
under a cover of clear sky
darkness opens its arms
I embrace a welcoming sky
promises of many tomorrows
crush, imagination, longing, lust,
I caught your eye as it flashed across my line of sight,
My first thought was that you were completely--out of sight.
A beautiful blonde would not give me a second thought,
I might as...Read More
Back To Her
children, conflict, french, retirement,
After the Sunday service, searching back to her
For a date. He will soon be walking back to her.
Bottle rockets popping over the Sacre Coeur.
She suddenly kissed him; he then leaning back to her.
Leave ending, the...Read More
To Our Delegation in Vienna
Who on earth has ever talked with wild beasts who don’t understand
A human tongue? You should only give them the back of your hand.
Why do you call yourselves grown-ups when you...Read More
